INTRODUCTION Neovascularisation is a hallmark of cancer. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is directly involved in the regulation of this tumoural neoangiogenesis, especially in lung cancer. Bevacizumab is a humanized monoclonal antibody targeting VEGF that is commonly used in thoracic oncology. Among the side effects, perforation of the nasal(More)
UNLABELLED The concept that ultrasonography could be interesting in the prehospital setting and during the transfer of traumatized patients is not new. Paradoxically, there is a lack of description of routine use of ultrasonography in emergency ambulances. The aim of this study was to compare the feasibility and efficiency of an extended focused assessment(More)
The FDG-PET (fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography) scan is used with increasing frequency to investigate pleural abnormalities and to determine the possibility of neoplastic invasion. However, false-positive findings are not uncommon and talc pleurodesis has been reported to cause hypermetabolic pleural thickenings up to 5 years after(More)
BACKGROUND The Consolidated Standards of Reporting Trials (CONSORT) guidance was extended in 2013 to provide a set of specific recommendations regarding patient-reported outcomes (PROs) reporting in randomized clinical trials (RCTs). There is limited data regarding how well current publications of oncology RCTs report PROs if assessed using these(More)
BACKGROUND Radiochemotherapy without surgical resection has become the treatment of choice for anal squamous-cell carcinoma. The optimal treatment for rectal squamous-cell carcinoma is not well established. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this work was to assess the efficacy of nonoperative strategies in the management of primary rectal squamous-cell carcinoma.(More)
We report the management of endobronchial a patient admitted to the ICU for respiratory distress in the consequences of an surgical recovery of his left pneumonectomy complicated by bronchopleural fistula as part of a bronchial carcinoma non-small cell type adenocarcinoma. Endobronchial treatment by gluing of the fistula may be an alternative to surgery. We(More)
BACKGROUND The management of airway bleeding is generally performed in an emergency to prevent hypoxemia and lung flooding. When the bleeding arises from peripheral lesions that are not visible endoscopically, bronchoscopic options have limited curative intents. Endobronchial embolization using silicone spigots (EESS) is a novel approach. OBJECTIVES We(More)
Invasive pulmonary aspergillosis (IPA) is a life-threatening fungal infection that predominantly affects severely immunocompromised patients, particularly those with prolonged neutropenia or organ transplantation.1 Definitions have been developed that facilitate the diagnosis of IPA in immunocompromised patients with cancer or hematologic malignancy.2(More)
BACKGROUND Solitary fibrous tumors of the pleura (SFTP) refer as to a heterogeneous group of mesenchymal malignancies with various anatomic and histology features. Upfront surgical resection is the standard approach, but recurrences may be aggressive and difficult to treat. The most widely accepted staging system has been proposed by De Perrot et al.(More)
Tracheobronchomalacia (TBM) in adults is a disease defined by a reduction of more than 50% of the airway lumen during expiration. It encompasses many etiologies that differ in their morphologic aspects, pathophysiological mechanisms and histopathologies. TBM is encountered with increasing frequency, as it is more easily diagnosed with new imaging techniques(More)
